Sharon fruit are also known as persimmons. They are used to flavour and colour these delicious cake slices. You can also use this recipe to make cupcakes, if you prefer. Serve as a snack or with a cup of tea or coffee.

Spanish persimmons have a firm yellowy orange coloured skin and sweet orange flesh, similar to a mango. Persimmons make a great snack for children as they’re seedless and stone free.

Persimmons make a deliciously different crumble! The flavour of persimmons reminds me of honey, so I added a little honey to the crumble. Use the firm persimmons for this recipe, not the ones that need weeks to ripen.

This is such an easy pud to make, but looks unbelievably impressive. That, combined with the fact that you can easily make everything ahead of time and assemble at the last minute, makes it the perfect dinner party dessert. Did I mention that it's healthy, too?

A moist and fruity cake which makes perfect use of extremely ripe persimmons. Ensure your persimmons are so ripe that they're almost like jelly. Simply halve the persimmons and scoop the pulp out with a spoon.

This gorgeous persimmon cake smells like autumn. Use very soft persimmons for this recipe, and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. A squeeze of lemon juice may be added to the puree to prevent discolouration and enhance taste.

This is a great way of incorporating fruit into a savoury salad. Sharon fruit is tossed with toasted hazelnuts and salad leaves. Enjoy as a starter or side dish.
